The return of spring is such a pleasant time to go on a nature walk… and to visit the Pont des Fées (Fairies’ Bridge), just a stone’s throw from the village of Grimaud.
With the delightful name comes an ancient aqueduct which supplied the village of Grimaud with water during the 16th and 17th centuries.
With a few waves of the wand, the bridge was built over the river ‘La Garde’.
The incomparable construction and the exceptional location earned it the classification of ‘remarkable site’ as early as 1927.
The beauty of spring
In spring, it’s easy to marvel when the first buds emerge!
You can only succumb to the flowery landscapes of this season at the Pont des Fées…
Your mind will float away on the soft ripple of the river as it echoes along, playing a different, original tune as it glides over the rocks.
Nature at its freest, breathing life into the wild grasses, dandelions and poppies…
A blend of colour and fragrance that’ll make you forget everything else!
Why not put on your trainers and make the most of this site?
It couldn’t be easier! Head for the cemetery car park below the St Roch Windmill. Look for the signpost for this itinerary, which takes between 1 and 1 1/2 hours.
